While I agree with you that there are so fewer responsible grown ups, having a doll around the house that teaches nurturing to a child is not a bad thing. Little girls that play with dolls don't grow up any quicker than those that do. Little boys that play with toy guns don't necessarily grow up to be deviant. The key is what is taught with the toy. It is a tool that can be used for good or bad. Like you said, society in general dictates how the child will learn responsibility.
